Aberllech is the perfect gentleman's country seat situated in a wonderful setting. The Grade II listed family home dates back to the 18th Century originally built for the High Sheriff and the current family have been in residence since the late 1980's. The imposing property boasts over 4500sqft of living space and is brimming with character and windows that frame the views. A fan light above the front door leads to a wide entrance hall complete with oak leaf moulded coving, tiled flooring and a fine timber staircase leading to the first floor. To the left of the hall is the dining room with Venetian style windows, a period fireplace and exposed floorboards. To the right is the drawing room again with Venetian windows and a large open fire; both reception rooms benefit from being south facing and boast an abundance of natural light. The kitchen/breakfast room has an array of wall and base units and an oil fired 4-oven Aga. Accessed from the kitchen is the snug which
could be used for more formal entertaining if required.

On the first floor is a sitting room currently used as the family room but which could be used as a double bedroom. Located from the principle landing there is access to two large double bedrooms, both having period fire surrounds with insert grates and exposed floorboards. There are two family bathrooms on this floor. On the second floor is the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and balcony. There are three further double bedrooms, two with a mezzanine floor and a modern family bathroom.

Aberllech sits in an elevated position within the Cilieni valley located within 0.2 of a mile to the nearest popular public house and boasting outstanding views from the property. Sennybridge is nearby and offers local amenities including a primary school, convenience store, public house and health centre. The local market town of Brecon has an extensive range of local shops, leisure facilities, schools and doctors.

The local area is famed for its rural landscape and offers extensive walking, riding and field sports on the doorstep. Hay-on-Wye is about 28 miles away and is particularly noted for its book shops, the world famous Hay Festival and all year round cultural events. The larger cities of Hereford and Cardiff are also within easy reach.

The property is approached via a stone pillared entrance with the long drive leading up to a parking area at the front of the main house. There are formal gardens to the front which are mostly laid to lawn and a lovely decked area with a hot tub to the west of the main house from which to enjoy the afternoon and evening sun. To the rear of the property is a raised hard tennis court.

Aberllech comprises about 10 acres of gardens and pasture land adjoining the property. There is also about 16 acres of pasture land and about 21 acres of woodland with pools, boasting an array of sporting wildlife including Woodcock, Mallard, Teal and widgeon along with wild Brown Trout in the lake, available by separate negotiation. The sporting rights are being sold with the property.

The Coach House has been converted into a self-contained holiday cottage boasting a kitchen to the ground floor and a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom to the first floor. There is an internal parking space and adjoining workshop. Beyond the cottage is the original Brew House which retains the original brew house still along with a malting floor; this is currently used as a utility area with an extremely useful office suite on the first floor.

Aberllech comprises an impressive array of outbuildings including stables, a tack room, hay barn, cart shed and piggeries. While incredibly useful these could be converted subject to the relevant consents.
